The Products

ALPE covers the entire value chain of PEMFCs. The value chain covered by ALPE starts from the synthesis of innovative electrocatalysts, and spans into: (i) their implementation in optimized membrane-electrode assemblies (MEAs; these components make the very heart of a PEMFC and consist of two electrodes covered by electrocatalysts sandwiching an ion-exchange membrane); (ii) the inclusion of such MEAs into PEMFC stacks; and finally (iii) the integration of such PEMFC stacks into complete PEMFC power plants able to provide energy to a “real” application. The very broad knowledge base provided by the different Partners of ALPE is meant to activate synergies that will better enable the exploitation of the unique features of the proposed ECs to achieve the goals of ALPE.
